Dear Terri...
...so the vigil for your final hours has begun in earnest-I can't believe no one beside your family and those keeping watch in Florida have truly spoken for you. Food and water are basic human rights, not 'medical treatment', so depriving you of nutrition and hydration is truly appalling, and nothing but torture and murder. I am a person who believes in the right of a woman to control what happens to her own body, I support the validity of written living wills and advance directives, and I even think it's a person's right to decide when it's time to leave this world, as long as he/she doesn't take anyone else with him. Michael Schiavo's actions through the years of his wife's incapacitation stink to high heaven.

Rest in peace, Terri.
